We hold auditions for all our singers to insure the potential chorister has a healthy voice and can sing on pitch. Come relaxed—this is not a test but a chance to hear and get to know you. We hold auditions in the Spring and Fall for children ages 8-15. Special auditions may be arranged by contacting the SHCC office by phone, text (724 949-0048) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Where are auditions held?
Auditions are held at View Crest Church in Eighty Four, PA. Go here for directions.
What is involved in an audition?
Auditions are brief, 5 to 10 minutes. Phrases and scales are played on a piano and the child is asked to sing them (parents are invited to stay) and no preparation is necessary. Also, no formal musical training is required for admission. Enthusiasm and interest in music is a great asset.
What should I bring?
You do not need to prepare any special music. Just bring yourself, your completed audition form, and the $25 audition fee if you have not already sent it in or paid online. If your student is accepted, this fee will cover the cost of registration.
When will I find out if I have been accepted?
You will receive a letter and registration form in the mail within two weeks of your audition time.
